July 20, 1969

It is impressive when you think about it.  July 20, 1969.  Computers were huge and took up an entire room.  This mechanical marvel called Apollo 11 took three men all the way to the moon and back.   Although we’ve seen great strides in Astronomy, including a privately launched space flight, we can stand in awe at this most auspicious of occasions, the 40th anniversary of a small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind.
